Base model UK cars aren't that base y'see. I've seen one of those targets in an Irish (scrap) car. :wink:

with the manual gearbox and go faster stripes, and splitty front windows i would choose, i'd personally avoid the slushbox one, not saying they are bad, just auto's are a bit alien to me so its a personal preference.

Hi mate.
I would go with macplaxton and dubwiesser. The older one has more rare wheels, mk1/2 rear spoiler and
go faster stripes :lol: . Also the body work looks in better condition.
Cheers Mark.
